    I just started reading Spitballing: The Baseball Days of Long Bob Ewing by Mike Lackey. Would one of the fine gentlemen around here happen to be the author? Very enjoyable writing about a very enjoyable subject.

    Re: What are you reading now?

    Just finished "We Need To Talk About Kevin". Very unusual book. Strangely fascinating, even though I really didn't like *any* of the characters. Mom was pretentious, judgmental and condescending, Dad was a head in the sand Ward Cleaver wanna be, Son was, while a genius, also psychotic, and the Daughter was just, well, sad. The story was compelling, and I couldn't stop reading it. It was an interesting look into the possible line of thinking and life of a kid who could and would become a school shooter type.

    I doubt I'll read any of the author's, Lionel Shriver, other books though. After reading a few online interviews with her, she comes across as judgmental, condescending and anti-American herself. The Mother in "Kevin" was a self portrait IMO. Just to me she came across as a very unpleasant person.

    http://www.amazon.com/Wool-Hugh-Howe...s=wool+omnibus

    "Wool" by Hugh Howey

    My wife got me a kindle fire HD for my bday a month or so ago (30th - ouch) and I read the first of 5 parts, which was a free sample, and could not put it down. I picked up the omnibus and it has been an excellent read so far.

    Takes place in a futuristic society of people that have lived in a silo for many generations after the Earth was heavily contaminated.

    An inspiration for many of us who self-publish electronically. Still, there's so much dreck out there. . . .

    And self-promoting, at least for me, is soul-killing.

    IIRC that was a Bachman book. We read that in high school and it was a very good read.

    I know that. I am not a huge King fan but I thought that most of his early books were written under the pen name Bachman. It was a reference to The Long Walk being one of his early books, or "a Bachman book."
